Computers do Byte

alt

I just do not understand computers

it was pens and paper when my school taught us

a blackboard and chalk was our teacher's tool

I'd just like to understand what they are, that's all

I simply don't know my ROM from my RAM

which shows what a novice at this game I am

***

I envy those who know their bits from their bytes

and know how to get software in their sights

can use a mouse pad to access all those files

so they can use those fonts in those different styles

to produce masterpieces in their graphics pack

so much for progress, please bring the blackboard back!

***

I'll not say the teacher is boring and past their prime

if someone showed me how to use this black box of mine

How I wish I could use windows VISTA and DTP

memory stix, blue tooth chips and blackberries

I'd love to know what the information highway means

but the closest I'll get is in my electronic dreams!
